Arsenal are considering sending Reiss Nelson away in the summer transfer window.

has featured in nine games for


this season, with two of them being in the

Premier League


In the last campaign, the 21-year-old has made 22 appearances, having been on a loan deal away at


in the 2018/19 season.

Since the winger is not given regular game time, he may be interested in a transfer when the campaign ends.

According to

CBS Sports

, the Gunners are open to offers for their player who started at their academy at the age of nine. The Arsenal boss

Mikel Arteta

has believed in promoting young players ever since joining the club in 2019.

Bukayo Saka


Emile Smith-Rowe

play crucial roles in the Spaniard’s ploy. Nelson, however, has climbed down the pecking order.

For the Gunners to raise some funds for signing new players, they have to cash in on players like Nelson.

The 21-year-old’s contract will expire in 2023 and he is not going to complete his contract.

"We have pace in a few players up front. Reiss [Nelson] is a special player and can eliminate players one on one. He's been out for a while but he's back now and he showed what he's capable of doing,” Arteta said of the forward last year.

Arsenal will lock horns with


in the

Europa League

on Thursday.
